Opened in mid-October 2014, Sanford House offers women ages 18 and up a chance to start over. Substance abuse is a very real concern for Americans, as roughly 10 percent struggle with it. Additionally 4 million women develop a dependence on alcohol or drugs out of the approximate 9 million that struggle with misuse.
